2 Manual Drafting Methods
T square and Triangle AccuDraw mimics the way we would use a T-square and Triangle, or a Drafting Machine. Drafting Machine

3 Drawing Plane Indicator
AccuDraw AccuDraw Toggle Button Y Axis Tick Origin X Axis Tick Parts of the AccuDraw Compass The Origin – This is the center of the compass and it is always location 0,0. Don’t confuse this with “coordinate xy=0,0”, they are not the same thing. The Drawing Plane Indicator – That is the dashed shape surrounding the origin. In this case it is square which indicates that you are in rectangular mode. There is also a polar mode, which we will look at later. The Axis ticks – These are AccuDraw’s X and Y axis. (Note that I am not referring to the design plane axis or the view axis.) The Red tick always indicates the positive X direction, and the Green tick always indicates the positive Y direction. There is no mark to indicate the Z direction. Remember the compass indicates a construction plane, not a volume of space. The Z field only appears in the AccuDraw dialog box when working in a 3D model. Drawing Plane Indicator AccuDraw Dialog Box Compass

4 Demonstrations Indexing – As you approach one of the axes, you snap to it and lock there briefly. Smart Key-In feature – The cursor bounces back and forth between the X and Y fields.
